Hugh Keevins makes another outlandish Celtic claim on live radio

The bandwagon is certainly being jumped on since Celtic’s 0-0 draw with Livingston on Saturday afternoon.

From fans laying into Mikey Johnson to lamenting the decision of leaving Kyogo Furuhashi on the bench, it seems that there is much anger at Celtic’s inability to break down a side that continually parks the bus every time they meet in the league.

And it’s not only the fans that are taking the opportunity to batter into Celtic over the result.

I wrote last night how Hugh Keevins claimed that Celtic’s disastrous weekend was down to bad decision making and to a certain extent, that is very true.

Speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Keevins said, “Bad decision making, I think, by Ange Postecoglou to start with Giakoumakis and I’m not saying it with the benefit of hindsight.

“I said  it at the very start of the game. Bad decision making that allows Giakoumakis, who’s had a terrible day, to take the last gasp penalty kick.”

Except that is not what he said before the start of the game.

Every pundit, including former Celt Mark Wilson, said leaving Kyogo on the bench was good management by Ange Postecoglou and whilst Keevins didn’t go quite that far, he certainly didn’t say that the decision to leave him on the bench was a bad decision.

What he actually said was, “I’m trying to remember that when Kyogo signed for Celtic, it was at the end of the J League season.

“He’s had a lot of football. The Japanese season over and he’s played a third of the Scottish League season so I assume that is at the back of Ange Postecoglou’s mind.

“But for me, a Celtics side minus Tom Rogic because of injury and minus Kyogo Furuhashi is a Celtic side reduced in attacking flair.”

Reduced in attacking flair but not a bad decision as he claimed to have said at the start of the show.

It seems that either he is saying this to stick the boot into the manager or to drum up some callers to the show by using some sort of soothsaying controversy.

Neither worked and all he’s done here is make himself look foolish and less trustworthy to the Celtic fans.
